Where are we today ?
clic on a pic to enlarge itUp early again as usual, kinda chilly outside about 24f (-4c) and a light dusting of snow overnight. Headed the 3 blocks to Pettigrew's Garage at 7:30 am and Dale installed our new spark plugs and wires. I used to do that all the time, but nothing is simple anymore with these cars. I have hundreds of dollars worth of tools, but no spark plug wrench for these newer plugs, and the distributor cap has 2 long bolts just to take the wires off. I watched him do it what a stupid process. Nobody could steal the plug wires very easily like in the good old days that's for sure!
Back home we puttered around for a bit, discussed our winter expenses with the high exchange rate. Compared to 2 years ago (last year we were only south for 3 months). It only cost us $500.00 more this year for the same 5 1/2 months. So really the exchange was a none issue for us. Mind you we did more boondocking, fuel was much cheaper, our insurance was higher (we getting older). Now what is not in the comparison was the repairs to our coach and the flight back here for a funeral. The repairs were needed no matter where we were. And still much less expensive than staying here in Canada for the winter. Plus we got to get away from the cold and snow.
